Social Distancing

  • Do not go if you have any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Wash your hands throughly before going out.
  • Park carefully, avoiding getting too close to others.
  • Please leave at least 2m between yourself and others not in your household. Remember that when running, you could be spreading virus further than when standing still, particularly in your wake.
  • If someone is already at a control, wait. If you cannot get close enough for the control to register, let us know by email and we can review your track manually.
  • Overtake carefully. Perhaps wait for wide grassed areas instead of trying to do it on a narrow path.
  • Be respectful to other users of the area.
  • Wash your hands as soon as possible afterwards.


Code of Conduct

Please make sure you have read and comply with the Participant Code Of Conduct and Parent Code Of Conduct.

Entry Details

Fill in the entry form to get the link to the map download folder - make sure you right click and open in a new tab. The maps will appear in the folder shortly before the event - if they aren't there yet please bookmark the link.

Due to the limit on numbers per start window to maintain social distancing, you will have to fill in a form for every participant, not just one per family.

Registration & Start Times

Unlike most JOGs this series, this event is only open on the Saturday. First start 1000 and last start 1500. Due to the compressed nature of this, we are restricting it to only 6 people allowed for each 15 minute block of starts in order to maintain social distancing.

Because of the limitations of GPS in wooded and sloping areas, all controls will have a small orienteering marker to confirm you have reached the right spot. If after finding and circling the marker, at approximately a 5 to 10 metre circle, your GPS has not digitally punched, move on to the next control and let us know when you reach the finish. We can check the traces and will confirm the punch if you were clearly in the vicinity of the control.

Badger and Fox courses: remember to keep clear of the Finish punch until the end.
